Rockland Graduate Campus Hosts Lifelong Learners

Learning Collaborative Offers Courses for Adults


Hudson Graduate Center at Rockland,
Long Island University

If you've retired from your job, but have no plans to retire from learning, or you're just looking to share a fulfilling educational experience with others who have similar interests, there is a new program at the Rockland Graduate Campus of Long Island University that's tailored precisely for lifelong learners.

The Learning Collaborative at the Rockland Graduate Campus offers students the opportunity to gather one day a week to discuss, debate and explore a specific topic of interest to the group. The setting is relaxed and intimate, allowing people from various fields the opportunity to share their knowledge. The small classes are led by an instructor who may or may not be from the world of academia, but whose background and expertise uniquely qualify them for the subject.

The courses last six weeks and explore such topics as responsible journalism, biomedical ethics, literature, church/state issues and theatre, among others. Participants choose two classes in the morning session and two classes in the afternoon. There will be an interesting speaker during each lunchtime period. The launch of the innovative program is set for Tuesday April 10, 2007. Additional session dates are April 17, 24, May 1, 8 and 22, 2007 and the classes meet from 9:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. The courses are open to anyone; admission to the University is not necessary for non-degree classes. All classes have limited enrollments to foster discussion and are filled on a first-come basis.

For more information, contact the Center for Professional Development and Life-Long Learning at the Rockland Graduate Campus by calling 845-359-7200. The Rockland Graduate Campus is located at 70 Route 340 in Orangeburg, NY. It is a half-mile east of Route 303 and can be reached from Exit 5N off the Palisades Parkway.
